When I open the Mail app on my iPad the last email read is always displayed. Is it possible to change this behavior?

What do you want to change it to? – Clare Macrae Feb 17 '13 at 9:47
@ClareMacrae I would prefer that the right-hand window was just empty. – Bryan Roth Feb 17 '13 at 17:23
Ah right. I had a look through the Settings for email, and couldn't see anything to help. – Clare Macrae Feb 17 '13 at 20:38

There is no way to adjust this behaviour on iOS with the current version (iOS 6.1 and prior)

Darn. Thanks for letting me know. – Bryan Roth Feb 20 '13 at 6:20
